People are constantly making comparisons between Nintendo and Apple. Which is understandable; both are figureheads and innovators in their respective fields: video games and personal computing. Though Nintendo is often a favorite target of Apple diehards, who often state that the house that Mario built should just throw in the towel when it comes to hardware are just make games for iOS.
Yet anyone familiar with video game history knows that such a move would not end well. Just take a look at what happened to Sega. Plus there is plenty of evidence to show that Nintendo is doing well for itself (like the report earlier today that says the 3Ds, in many ways a competitor to the iPhone and iPad, is killing it in Japan).
